    Hello,

    Does the card age on Team Board or Kanban Board include or exclude weekends?

    Thanks for your assistance,

    Stephanie

    Hi @Stephanie Goodson,

    It is just a day counter, so it doesn't know about weekends,

    Hope that helps.

    Hi,

    So if a card is started on a Friday, on the following Monday the age of the card will be 4 days?

    Is there any way to not count weekend days in the age of the card?

    Thanks.
    Eric

    Hi Eric,

    Unfortunately, no. Rally doesn't consider working days in most of the system.

    In the early days of Rally, I used to coach people to make sure that tasks were less than one days work - so you could home at night knowing you had finished something, and that stories should never go over the week, so you could spend you weekend not worrying about outstanding work problems. This inevitably meant that the vast majority of the stories never had the issue. I.e. make the process respect work/life balance.

    But I know we don't live in an ideal world.
